MUDDY WATERS - SINGS "BIG BILL" (CHESS 1960) Jap mastering cardboard sleeve




In 1960, when Muddy Waters recorded this album as a tribute to Big Bill Broonzy two years after Broonzy's death, he could be sure of Broonzy's approval. "Oh yeah, Muddy is a real singer for the Blues," Big Bill, the Mississippi foundation stone, was heard to say early on in Muddy Waters' career. Full of confidence after a Best Of compilation released on the Chess label in 1959 and his legendary appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, Muddy set down his own Broonzy songs. It goes almost without saying that such successful numbers as "I Feel So Good" and "Tell Me Baby" are overflowing with a Chicago feeling that gets right under your skin. Muddy's backing band includes Otis Spann, James Cotton and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith.[acousticsounds.com]

Εάν παραδοθείς στη δύναμη και την αυθεντικότητα που αποπνέουν αυτές οι ηχογραφήσεις, πόσο ελάχιστα και ασήμαντα μπορούν να φαντάζουν τα υπόλοιπα...
ΜΠΡΑΒΟ για τις τρεις blues δισκάρες.
Καλό καλοκαίρι.

Ακριβως ετσι ειναι οπως τα λες.
Εαν αρχισεις μια ακροαση ενα βραδυ με blues δυστυχως στη συνεχεια δεν μπορεις να προσαρμοστεις σε τιποτα αλλο..... το εχω βιωσει!!!
Αντε με δυσκολια να πας λιγο στη Jazz η στο early rock & roll...
Αλλα ΟΚ και τα φρουτα καλα ειναι καμμια φορα για αλλες ωρες αμα ειναι καλης ποιοτητας...χαχαχαχαχα..
